I Suspect...Foul Play!
Let me start off with this: I enjoyed the story and the way the characters were developed. Fun stuff. Honestly, it would have been a really great flick if not for...well...keep reading.
Messages: I felt like a solid message of "justice" was presented. I don't want to spoil any of the story for you though so I'll leave it at that. That said, I need to also include that there were Not-so Great messages. Drugs. Why do we need to make drugs normal? Really folks...drugs can really mess a person up.
Role Models: If you watch the film you'll be able to tell which characters display a good model to follow. Honestly, I think there were several folks like this (some weren't "main" characters though). Annnd there were some reeeally poor role models. Nuf said.
Violence: It was nice that they actually didn't show much in the way of violence. There were a couple times when something violent caught us by surprise though. Also, two events in particular might be pretty disturbing for kids. One is fairly short lived the other lasts a bit longer.
Sexy Stuff: This is always an area of particular caution for me. I like to limit my exposure to things like this. I was actually really pleased with how little VISUAL things were present. As the movie unfolded I expected to see statues or other art forms that were subtle or overt or both...but it wasn't there! I call that a win for this director. Buuut then there was the verbal stuff...annnnd the win is taken away. There were several sexual (distinctly sexual: masterbation, "boinking", etc.) comments. One scene in particular involves a discussion about a young man's activities on his phone and in the bathroom. Sigh...unfortunate.
Swearing: Yes...there's a fair amount of swearing. Quite a bit actually. It wasn't "situationally appropriate" either. A lot of it was really unnecessary.
Consumerism: This was present in so much as greed over wanting to inherit the spoils of a deceased wealthy relative (I don't think that was a spoiler...it's in the trailers and is the primary plot of the film) could naturally cause it...but the characters do an exemplary job of taking it to the next level for sure.
Drinking/Drugs/Smoking: Yes, there are all three. Hard liquor, Beer, Cigars, Cigarettes, and Pot are all present. It's not a ton, but it is there.
So, all in all, what are my thoughts? It's a movie I wouldn't tell folks NOT to see, honestly, I think a lot of folks will likely really enjoy it. I laughed quite a bit along the way, but I also cringed a few times too. It's a film I wouldn't likely buy, but will probably rent and watch using my favorite filtering service, VidAngel (looove VA by the way!).
Hope this helps!
Enjoy a great film and let us know what you thought.
